Regional Digital Screen Network

Regional communities often don't have the opportunity to see the same range of Australian films as larger metropolitan centres. The AFC's REGIONAL DIGITAL SCREEN NETWORK (RDSN) helped change all that. The groundbreaking network equipped eight venues in regional Australia with a digital cinema system, enabling them to screen a wide variety of Australian films that had not screened outside major capital cities before. The AFC supported a wealth of Australian programming for the network, from new Australian feature films to regular monthly screenings, mini-festivals and school screenings.

The participating venues were independent cinemas with a proven record of wanting to screen Australian programs and of working with the AFC on the Big Screen Touring Film Festival. They were:

Big Screen Cinemas, Hervey Bay (Qld)
Forum 6 Cinemas, Wagga Wagga (NSW)
Majestic Cinemas, Singleton (NSW)
The Regent, Yarram (Vic)
CMax Cinemas, Devonport (Tas)
Orana Cinemas, Albany (WA)
Katherine Cinemas 3, Katherine (NT)
Cinema Augusta, Port Augusta (SA)
